“Happy” by 3 Minute Hero from F-Minus: Uncollected Works
Here’s what the band had to say about their upcoming show and release:
“3 Minute Hero – isn’t that the band that…” Yes, yes, yes: public urination – but that is all in the past, like so many other things. First, let us dispose of the third person introductions. The 3 Minute Hero Show is back after a stint in our creative chrysalis and ready to emerge like the tantalizingly lurid butterfly that we are. We could tell you about our throbbing rhythm section, our undeniably handsome horn section, and our non-stop frontal assault on the banality of live music, but that tells you nothing. Come closer. Smell that? It’s electricity, and sweat, and liquor, and laughter, and possibly hair product. It’s the smell of you at our next show – and you smell great.
3 Minute Hero will be debuting their completely unexpected and unnecessary musical response to 9/11, the new album “F Minus: Uncollected Works.” Each album is numbered and features original, uninspired lino-cut art on the cover, as well as containing a one-of-a-kind band photograph (which may or may not contain the band and will undoubtedly be out of focus &/or irrelevant). In addition to this, there will be a shiny disc with music on it – terrible music – from a touching ballad of pant-wetting to a butchered Duke Ellington cover to a chalupa-induced hallucination. This promises to be the least earnest, most bullshitty, fleeting, uneven, and incomprehensible album of 2011. It’s also awesome as hell. You’re welcome.
